Text of Imam Elahi's prayer at the National day of prayer at Dearborn Council Chambers!
"Salaam and good afternoon
How wonderful to observe another national day of prayer, we praise and thank Our Lord for this blessing opportunity!
O God Please bless everyday and every moment of our life with prayer, piety, peace and progress!
Please Bless our hearts with humility, our minds with wisdom and our souls with passion and determination to represent Your kindness, character and Your Divine desires for this world!
Let’s reflect Your shining light of love, mercy, generosity and justice to end the darkness of ignorance, arrogance, hate, violence, war and terrorism!
Let’s be instruments of Your universal peace and perception to replace fire and fury with faith and friendship, brutality and bloodshed with benevolence and brotherhood, Racism, Islamophobia and antisemitism with understanding and awareness!
O Compassionate and caring Creator, Save our families, communities, State and country from any harm and evil, any physical or spiritual sin and sickness.
We praise You O Lord and ask Your assistance for hundreds of millions of people suffering from the pain of poverty, war and hopelessness, from Venezuela to Yemen, Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan , Myanmar and other parts of the world.
Please help and heal those nations and save them from those unjust, greedy and deadly wars and comfort them with peace, freedom, and their human rights and integrity, Ameen."
